While Hollywood has gone wild for superhero movies now, it was a long and rocky road before their arrival. For every Batman, there was a Batman & Robin. One of those poor showings was “Green Lantern,” and while director Martin Campbell was hoping for the gravitas and energy of Robert Downey Jr., what he actually got was a wooden performance for a character that traditionally has been very witty, engaging, and memorable.
While Reynolds has succeeded as Deadpool, the Green Lantern just didn’t work, and the movie ended up as one of the worst bombs of his career.
Sofia Coppola as Mary Corleone in The Godfather III
The first two Godfather films are unforgettable pieces of filmmaking history. The "Godfather III" sucks every ounce of energy out of the storyline with some bizarre writing and a certain casting choice that even now is a watchword for Hollywood nepotism. As the daughter of famous "The Godfather" director Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola was killed off before the third act and is one-half of the worst makeout scene in Hollywood.
Sofia has gone on to be a great director and screenwriter, but as the daughter of Michael Corleone, she probably wishes she had passed on the opportunity.
Kevin Costner as Robin Hood in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
C-Kev has plenty of great acting roles under his belt, but dressing up in the tights of this legendary woodsman was a misfire. As a follow-up to his Oscar-winning "Dances With Wolves" performance, it's hard to take this non-English-accented, long-haired Californian seriously. He looked to combine the earnestness of Elliot Ness from "The Untouchables" and the crassness of Crash Davis from Bull Durham, but he forgot that in both of those films, he was trying to act.
The film itself didn't garner much applause, and Costner's spot as the top-billed, playing one of England's legendary mythical figures, was a sticking point for many critics.
Colin Farrell as Alexander in Alexander
Alongside Jolie as his one-year-older mom, Colin himself is another miscast for this famous flop. He has plenty of good acting roles, but the Irishman dropped the ball as Alexander the Great. His casting was seen as insensitive to Greek culture and simply could act as the morally bereft and greedy emperor who would go on to rule most of the known world.
Farrell has laughed at himself, being quite critical of his bleached blond hair, as well as the Irish accent, which was one of the common things for reviews to mention as a sticking point.
Halle Berry as Catwoman in Catwoman
Michelle Pfeiffer broke ground as the first portrayal of this sharp character in Batman Returns, but when Halle Berry was handed the claws in 2004, it was for what is regarded as one of the worst films of all time. Instead of the sensual and seductive Pfeiffer, Berry was over-the-top and hyper-sexual, despite doing well as superheroine Storm in the X-Men series.
This movie was a dizzying travesty of writing, directing, producing, and acting and won four Razzies in 2004. Berry, for her credit, looks back and laughs at how bad the film is and even collected her Razzie in person.
